Day 4: Guiting Power to Winchcombe. 6 miles
Walk Description: "Walk through woods and fields before the dramatic descent to the ancient Saxon capital of Winchcombe, close to Sudeley Castle, last resting place of Katherine Parr, Henry VIII's sixth wife."
We start the day walking with the sheep.
Another beautiful day. We never experienced a drop of rain until we got to London later in our trip.
The trail took us up the driveway of this house and then veered off into a field.
Into the woods.
We came out of the woods high on the hilltop.
Winchcombe seen with zoom lens.
We had a ways to go yet.
Stopping for elevenses: water and biscuits aka cookies.
My one spill was walking across this bridge.
On the castle grounds.
[More photos of the castle and other architectural features we saw on our walk will be the subject of another post. You can see some of the gardens here.]
